We know he loved Teles...and the occassional Jazzmaster. But I'm curious as to why there wasn't at least one righteous old Strat in his collection.

Any insights from folks who knew him?

Ted liked the way Stratocasters sounded, but he did not like the way they were designed. For instance, he did not like where the strat's body sat on the guitarist's body and he did not like the neck placement and angle. In his opinion, Fender got a lot of things wrong in the Stratocaster. Good question!

Thanks Dan. Very interesting. Conventional wisdom is that Strats are the most comfortable Fenders of all, with the contoured body.  Questioning the status quo was one of Ted's hallmarks it seems...look at all the wild modifications he did to some of his guitars!
